, former state department director, will be here to discuss john kerry's appointment to the secretary of state and what he means to obama foreign policy. we will be talking to a man who put the fate of the keystone pipeline and the fate of the president's hands. we have dave heineman with his approval to give president obama a second chance. we begin with the obama party is campaign to ban assault weapons. they not only want to ban assault weapons but certain handouts. for more on what the democrats are trying to do to our second amendment rights, we bring in shannon bream. reporter: senator dianne feinstein acknowledges that it will be an uphill battle. this new measure would ban the sale and manufacture and transfer and importation of 157 specific garments, along with a broader group of other guns that will meet at a lower threshold for being classified as an assault weapon is the sale and transfer and gifting of anything classified as an assault weapon. >> no weapon is taken from anyone. the purpose is to try up the supply of these weapons over time. therefore there is no sunset on
veteran john kerry on top to be america's top diplomat. the senate foreign relations committee is holding a hearing on the nomination to become secretary of state. kerry talked about how his military experience in vietnam has shaped his views. >> i want all of us to keep in our minds as i think we do the extraordinary men and women in uniform who are on the front lines even as we meet here today. the troops at war who helped protect america i can pledge to you that as a veteran of war i will always carry the consequence for our decisions in my mind and be grateful that we have such extraordinary people to back us up. >> want to bring in our foreign affairs correspondent. kerry it seems like is ready made for the job. this is something where he got the nod after you had susan rice withdrawing her own nomination from consideration. this is someone who has wanted something more than a senate seat for quite some time. >> yes he has. when you say ta made for the job. president assad of syria told me and that is kind of the tone that we have had. he has rubbed shoulders, talked with, influenced
disagree with. i also would suggest, once senator kerry gets confirmed for secretary of state, that he go to the region in the nearest possible time frame. he knows all the leaders there. he's known bibi netanyahu for 25 years, has a very close relationship with him, among others. and that in a nearer time frame after that, president obama go to the region, including israel, and take his own measure of the situation. it's pa reset moment, i think, for the region with israel as a player in the region, and for our policy to the region. >> i want to talk to you. you mentioned john kerry, the incoming secretary of state. he has called for a freezing of settlements, but he's also called for a two-state solution. how does he go to israel, netanyahu elected, at least in part, with the strong support of the right, who does not want that. how does john kerry go to israel, and to your point say, look, your future as a jewish democracy depends on you changing or breaking with some of the people who got you elected. how do you make that case? put yourself in his shoes. >> i wouldn't presume to tell b
kerry during his confirmation hearing to be secretary of state. kerry will answer questions from his colleagues on the senate foreign relations committee. he is the committee's chairman so new jersey senator robert menendez will preside over the hearing. president obama nominated kerry last month to succeed hillary clinton at the state department. >>> a developing story right now out of south korea -- rather, north korea. the south korean government says north korea may be preparing a nuclear test. the associated press reporting that north korea is warning that it is ready to conduct a test as well as carry out more long-range missile launches. three -- rather, threatening to wage a "full-fledged confrontation again the u.s." for what it calls continued hostility. the threats come just days after the u.n. condemned the country's rocket launch last month. >>> this morning, a grandfather wants answers in his grandson's death in prince george's county. over the weekend, 16-year-old marcus antonio jones was shot and killed outside a birthday party. police held a public meeting last night
request to ask at least two senators to join his cabinet. john kerry, secretary of state and, of course, the former senator chuck hagel to make his way over to the defense. what can we expect in the next 100 days of this second term? much is made of that. is it too late for that, a continuation for that, what? >> it will be partisanship. today's idealism, the lofty goals that the country sets forth a couple centuries ago, they are very difficult to realize. particularly, this modern era of such tension and partisanship between the right and left in this country. we reject the notion of in effect serious reforms to medicare, social security and medicaid. when he talks about climate change. immigration. the debt and deficit. how he plans to go about approaching that. it is a coated and positive message that sends a very direct message. this speech, this inaugural address is intensely political. it does send a signal to the city and the country. there are some serious serious battles over very major things coming. there was some idea that perhaps the president, because of the close nature
as the secretary of state. senator john kerry, our foreign affairs correspondent, jill dougherty, was watching what could very well be her last public appearance before congress. >> the waning days of hillary clinton as her secretary of state and it's time to ask the question, did she put her mark on that job? hillary clinton's last day of secretary of state is almost here. >> we're all getting a little emotional anticipate sentimental around here. we have about a little over a week to go in my tenure. >> that is, if the senate, as expected, confirms john kerry by then. >> john is the right choice to carry forward the obama administration's foreign policy and i urge his sped deacon firm mags. >> before leaving, just like her first day on the job four years ago -- >> i am absolutely honored and thrilled beyond words to be here with you. >> clinton is likely to say good-bye to the diplomat she's led and deliver a major speech on international policy. but her last days as america's high-flying top diplomat have been overshadowed by nearly a month of illness, the fallout over the deadly attack in bengh
. >> schieffer: you're going to have a pretty important job coming up here shortly once john kerry is confirmed as secretary of state. every indication is that he will be. you're going to have to appoint somebody to replace him. >> i've heard that, (laughs) >> pelley: give us a clue. >> no clues today other than it will be somebody who is aligned with the president's ageneral the, will be a good partner to the president and the majority leader, which is important. i always remind our citizens back theme the main event is not the interim appointee, it's the election of a new senator in the special election. that's what we need to focus on. >> schieffer: i take it will be a democrat? >> it will be a democrat. the. >> pelley: governor patrick, thank you for joining us. we have in the capitol rotunda a very special guest today, valerie jarrett, senior advisor to the president and i day air is the person in washington who has known the president and first lady longest, being a long-time friend of both in chicago. ms. jarrett, great of you to be with us, thank you so much. >> it's a pleasure. it's a

. tomorrow he takes a message on the road with a stop in richmond, virginia. john kerry will face the senate foreigns relation committee. the president picked massachusetts senator to replace the retiring hillary clinton as the nation's top diplomate. kerry will likely cruise through an easy confirmation. >> it was emotional, blunt and sometimes heated testimony as secretary of state hillary clinton answered questions about the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. accused the white house of fwlaming the attack on an offensive video. >> the fact is we had four dead americans was it because of a protest or guys out for a walk and decided they'd kill americans? what difference at this point does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. honestly, i will do my best to answer your questions about this. the fact is people were trying in real time to get to the best information. >> the secretary of state was also questioned about requests for beefed up security from ambassador chris stevens. she said she
to be the secretary of defense. john kerry to be secretary of state. jacob lew for the cia. >> you saw michelle obama moving swiftly to catch up with her husband as they exit the platform and head on inside the capitol. jared bernstein is with us. do don baer is with us. let me turn back to a question that was on my mind. i thought the speech was really the president expressing his view of the american ideal and how, where, and why government fits into that ideal, making an aggressive case here, touching everything from entitlements to obliquely security issues, climate change. >> income inequality. >> i think you're exactly right when you talk about the role of government, and it reminded me of the debate rehad in the election, in the campaign where one side, the victors in this case, argued for a much more pronounced role for government. and the president hit back on this theme of we're in this together, you can't go it alone, which he's actually highlighted back since 2008. >> but, don, do you think that the way that the president ticked off his own priorities and cast them as the will of the amer

been sent over to the senate. the nominations of john brennan for cia, chuck hagel, and john kerry and jack lew for treasury. that is a big deal in the weeks ahead. bret: it is a tradition. these nominations have been out there and but they are formally made it to the senate so they can hope that the senate will move forward in the days ahead and confirm his new cabinet. as you know, there could be some roadblocks there. questions republicans have about jack lew being nominated for treasury secretary. they are not happy about the way some of the budget negotiations have gone in the past. of course, the debt ceiling in that debate will be hanging over those hearings. john kerry coming in, nominee for secretary of state. as chris mentioned, hillary clinton will be testifying on capitol hill, both the house and senate leader on benghazi. a lot of lingering questions on now. finally coming you mentioned chuck hagel as well. a lot of questions for him and his stance towards iran and israel. he has already asked so many of those questions on the sidelines. certainly it is usual that the
of state and the secretary of defense that he has, john kerry and hagel, they're communicating accurately the minimalist approach to the world. you can make a case for that. but neither, neither of them nor the president has a positive vision of how you're going to deal with a worldwide virus that is increasingly destabilizing the planet. and that's what's happening from pakistan through north africa to syria and i think potentially in europe and the united states. >> i have less than a minute here. i need one-word answers from you. joe biden made a bit of a slip up talking about how hap he was going to be president of the united states. >> joe biden would be happy to be president of the united states and i think he is planning to run, if possible. >> quickly. >> i think he wants to, but i'm not sure he will. >> why not? >> the american people deserve a break from presidential campaigns. >> oh, there's one. >> thank you, all, so much this morning. >> thank you. >>> next up, roosevelt, kennedy, lincoln, atchison, one of these names is not like the others. we'll have the story of a man some
nomination process today. senator kerry will go before the senate foreign relations committee in the first step to become the next secretary of state. to prepare for his new role, the senator will have to sell off many of his personal investments to avoid conflicts of interest. >>> president obama is expected to announce his first female nomination of mary jo white as ahead of the securities and exchange commission. >>> apple's days of double- digit growth are over. apple shares tanked by more than $50 in after-hours trading after apple said growth in the current quarter is going to be only 7%. in the latest quarter apple earned $13 billion the same as a year ago. >>> sales of iphones, ipads and mac computers were below expectations. >>> mayor lee is working up a very specific game plan as we count down to the super bowl. >> considering the mayhem that followed the giants world series win the mayor says his eye is on safety. still the twin victories of a giants world series win and 49ers super bowl trip has san francisco mayor ed lien joying the best of
of the things that the senate will be doing over the next weeks and months is the confirmations, and john kerry's hearing for secretary of state to be later this month and thought to be a shoo-in, but how realistic to be an opportunity for republicans to air grievances about the president's foreign policy? >> geared more towards chuck hagel ironically, because senator ker are ri iry is respe the democratic and the republican side and he has the credentials so they will hold the fire for chuck hagel who is going to be secretary of defense. >> and you said that chuck hagel brings up the next topic, the conservative group america future fund, and they have produced a tv spot blasting chuck hagel and his supporter senator chuck schumer that is going to air on cable outlets and this is a look at a it and the left is not happy with hagel either and they have a use your mandate saying that he is a bad choice for women and gays and support for israel. what is chuck hagel's confirmation hearing going to look like? >> this is going to be the opportunity for republicans who were obviously unhappy with the

. host: do his picks for the secretariat of defense statement that? guest: both will be confirmed. kerry is someone who the senators approve of more than secretary rice, who is controversial. senator kerry is much beloved by everyone on capitol hill. john mccain said he would endorse him. that will go through without controversy. both of these men will be confirmed easily. people think the secretary of defense choice is a signal that we will not be as aggressive as somewhat like in defending israel. host: minimum wage. do you expect those issues to gcome up>? guest: the campaign was focused on jobs. the relative lack of direct engagement with how you create jobs during the inaugural address. this was not a set of policy proposals. there will be more about this in the state of the union. it was striking that the focus of the campaign was not terribly reflected in the address he gave yesterday. as far as labor issues, a lot of this is going on in the states. there is a national political aspect to this. i do not know what plans they have for some of these issues. it was interesting yesterd

it will be her last official substantive responsibility as a secretary of state, john kerry, who is recusing himself. he has his own confirmation hearings tomorrow. he will not be participating today, he will be grilled and questioned tomorrow. so, this will be an opportunity for her to leave on a high note, if you will, and knowing her for 20 years, i think she will do a very impressive job. >> wolf, isn't it also important that she establish clarity? the last thing the administration wants is for there to be more questions, did she answer everything, she must be as clear as possible on everything that happened. >> yes, she is a lawyer, a former senator, former first lady, seblg tear of state, extremely smart. she always goes in very well prepared. she has her answers, i don't think she is going to be surprised. i think she will probably be very impressive, and given the health problems she had in recent week that's were very serious, i think she will leave the office on a high note. that's just my sense. >> it will be interesting to watch this testimony, wolf and dana. wolf is back in abou
in algeria, and she will make what may be her final appearance on capitol hill today to introduce john kerry at his confirmation hearing. he is likely to be asked how he'd address those threats as the next secretary of state. >> mar gren brgaret brennan, th >>> david ig nair shus wrote on this. good morning. >> good morning. >> she answered the questions and asked to put this behind her. >> she gave a good account. it was an intense session. thing on the sound bite we'll remember, secretary clinton asking what difference does it make knowing exactly how this happened. i think it does make a difference, and the reason is it's clear in hindsight that the united states simply didn't know enough about what was happening in benghazi on the day that these four americans were killed. the intelligence wasn't good, the security wasn't good. the plip low mats failed. there's a deep obligation on the department to do it better. so i think that position will persist. it's got to be fixed. >> the secretary will take responsibility. not only that she'll make sure the recommendations are enacted and that t
partner privateship agreement if we are going to move forward. senator john kerry is going to play a big role in this next nomination. >> nominee for secretary of state. and you can see the marines making way for the president himself. this is actually the president leaving the white house that you saw just a moment ago. his daughter malia and her grandmother leaving ahead of the president himself. there's going to be moments like this, the moments of transition throughout the day as they move between the different inaugural events, when everything stops and the focus of everybody's attention turns to the man himself. >> i just love looking at the marines. i do. they are so disciplined. you go to the white house and try to make eye contact with them. they are just so disciplined there doing a job of pageantry and protection. it is neat to be around that environment at the white house when you go in and see such, just unwavering discipline. >> that guy on the right is really not moving. >> he does not. they don't move. >> it really is kind of amazing in a time when we think of how much, j
kerry getting ready -- john kerry is the chairman still of the foreign relations committee in the senate but he's recusing himself. he won't even be there. i think he's gearing up for his own confirmation hearing but bob menendez, he's going to chair these hearings. >> that's right. and this is an odd way for her to go out. but, yes, she's leaving this week. >> let's talk a little bit about you. today's your first day on cnn. about a month ago we saw you on another network. but what have you been doing the last month gearing up for this major new challenge in your life? >> a lot of gearing up, a lot of time with my children, jack and alice. and also, i have this new book that i wrote about afghanistan. >> best seller, i must say. >> it is a bestseller. >> "the outpost ", right there. >> one of the staff sergeants in that book, it was announced that president obama is going to award him the medal of honor in february. so i've been -- >> he's a central character in the book. >> he's a big character in the book and i've been preparing for that. we're going to have a party with him. i've bee

john kerry. eight years later, not one gay question came up. the gay issue never came up as a wedge issue, eight years later. i think that's also a great sign of progress how far this country has come on the issue of -- on the issue of gay rights in to toe, not just same sex marriage, but should gays and lesbians be treated equally under the law, as the president said in this is inaugural address and to add on something joe just said, i'm not sure in 2014 democrats in swing districts will be running away from the president's inaugural address, i'll be curious what the president says in his state of the union address, that's where he gets down to the nitty-gritty of policy descriptions for the country. >> one of the other quick moments, i was thinking about the defense of marriage act, the fact it's coming up before the supreme court and the president gave stonewall unprecedent ed mention in the inaugural address. you had story the other day in the "new york times" about a gay couple, two women soldiers in afghanistan, who needed post-trauma counseling and went -- their chaplains tol

"washington post" columnist david ignatius had written extensively about the engazie attacks. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> we begin with the questions, whether secretary of state took responsibility, answered all the questions and put this behind her? >> she gave a good account of herself, she gave as good as she got. it was an intense session. i think on the sound bite that we'll remember secretary clinton asking what difference does it make? knowing exactly how this happened. i think it does make a difference, and the reason is it's clear in hindsight the united states simply didn't know enough about what was happening in benghazi on the day that these four americans were killed. the intelligence wasn't good the diplomatic security wasn't good, efforts to fix it had failed, and in that sense, secretary clinton is taking responsibility but there is a deep obligation in the de
